The Advocate Team

So what does an advocate do?

By definition, an advocate is someone that “speaks or writes in favor of, and recommends publically.”

We believe strongly in our mission to develop programs to help kids fight intergenerational poverty and we are looking for people that want to help us. 

If you believe in what we are doing, we would ask you to tell others, after all an advocate is someone that speaks or writes in favor of or recommends publically. Statistically speaking, every person supports, in some way, 4.5 different charities or non-profit organizations.

The way we effectively get the word out about who we are and what we do is through people hearing our story and having a chance to engage with us.

 

We would all agree that social media consumes a good portion of our day. We would also probably agree that social media is one of the main ways we now communicate with others. 

Using social media is one way that many of us communicate that which we like and that which we don’t. Any platform you use could be used to help distribute the great stories, information, and even a call to action.

Simply put, we would ask an advocate to “promote publically” the things that we are doing through email and social channels.

We know that you are on social media. Why not use it to help others get to know us and the great things that are happening?

Because Every Student Matters

We find that many kids today struggle academically and socially. Our organization provides tools and resources to help them overcome challenges giving them a chance to be successful in life. Jesus was clear that children were important and because Jesus believed that, we believe that.

Non-Profit Staff Statistics

Here are some non-profit staff statistics from causeiq.com

Nonprofits in the United States employ more than 22,336,381 people — easily the biggest nonprofit employment statistic. These positions are a combination of full-time and part-time employees — the number of employees reported on organizations’ Form W-3 (Transmittal of Wage and Tax Statements) — and does not include contractors and indirect employment. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 155.8 million full and part time workers in 2018, so the nonprofit sector directly employs ~14% of the U.S. workforce.

There are 100,113 small nonprofits that employ 10 or fewer people. Combined, these nonprofits employ 430,564 people, which is just 1.9% of the 22.3 million people employed by all nonprofits. While these small nonprofits represent 5.6% of all nonprofits, they are a plurality — 36.4% — of nonprofits that actually employ people. As noted above, the size of the nonprofit is separate from the impact on individuals and society, and many small organizations have a large impact (and vice versa).

Nonprofit personnel typically earn between $16,227 and $96,126 per year in wages, benefits, and other compensation. The nonprofits that on average pay the most are science and technology research centers ($96,126), medical research organizations ($79,547), and international and foreign affairs organizations ($87,408). These are specialized organizations that tend to employ highly educated personnel. On the opposite end we see organizations with more part-time workers and a less skilled work force. These include recreation, sports, and social clubs ($16,227), youth development organizations ($17,877), and human services organizations ($21,862). Please note that these nonprofit employment statistics includes both part-time and full-time workers, and different types of nonprofits employ more part-time workers than others. Nonetheless, the trends are still interesting.
